Female Singer/Songwriters TO DIE FOR!

A Listmania! list by Leonora Skov (Copenhagen, Denmark)
(REAL NAME)   
 
Choreography
1.  Choreography by Lauren Hoffman
The list author says:
  "A highly melodious outing from Lauren. If you like Cat's The Greatest you'll love this. Try Broken and Ghost You Know. Her debut, Megiddo, recalls the angrier work of PJ and Fiona. Worth a listen."

Entropy 29
2.  Entropy 29 by Terami Hirsch
The list author says:
  "Hyper talented Terami creates theatrical dreampop with her soaring voice, prominent piano playing, and rich computer programming. Yes, she does it all herself. Try Anywhere But Here and Little Light"
Used & New from: $0.90

Little Earthquakes
3.  Little Earthquakes by Tori Amos
The list author says:
  "The album that changed my life back in 1993. It remains my favourite along with Natalie's Ophelia, Fiona's Tidal, Sarah's Surfacing, PJ's Stories From the City, and Kate's This Woman's Work."
$10.52   Used & New from: $0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (400 customer reviews)

Spine
4.  Spine by Veda Hille
The list author says:

Used & New from: $0.35
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Begin to Hope
5.  Begin to Hope by Regina Spektor
The list author says:
  "Regina Spektor's big label debut oozes with personality and quirkiness. Tunes like On the Radio and Better are memorable for their beat, Samson for Spektor's piano playing. An eccentric album. Dive in"
$11.99   Used & New from: $0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (223 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

The Blackened Air
6.  The Blackened Air by Nina Nastasia
The list author says:
  "Stylish, minimalistic album. Superb songwriting and whispery vocals. Ideal for late evenings and rainy sundays. Try This Is What It Is and Ocean. Her debut album, Dogs, is equally great."
$12.91   Used & New from: $0.32
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Far
7.  Far by Tina Dico
The list author says:

Used & New from: $0.27
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (15 customer reviews)

Poise Is The Greater Architect
8.  Poise Is The Greater Architect by Ilya
The list author says:
  "Ilya sounds like a weird combination of Massive Attack, Fiona, and Bjrk. The songwriting is a little weak at points, but tunes like Blatchford and Isola rock."
Used & New from: $1.92
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Eivor
9.  Eivor by Eivor Palsdottir
The list author says:

Lullaby for Liquid Pig
10.  Lullaby for Liquid Pig by Lisa Germano
The list author says:
  "This woman is the answer to all your prayers if you love PJ, Kristin Hersh, and Shannon Wright. Try From a Shell and do buy har spooky Geek the Girl and queer side project, OP8."

O Seasons O Castles
11.  O Seasons O Castles by Katell Keineg
The list author says:
  "That voice! Dark and rich like a nouvelle Alison Moyet. It's all over the place on this, her debut. A collection of silently haunting, literary tunes that demand repeated listening. Try Hestia."

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

Ohio
12.  Ohio by Over the Rhine
The list author says:

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (63 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Many Worlds Are Born Tonight
13.  Many Worlds Are Born Tonight by Happy Rhodes
The list author says:
  "Latest album from Happy whose voice ranges from the highs of Kate Bush to the lows of Alison Moyet. Gorgeous synth production, dreamy Laurie A.-like soundscapes. Astounding avantgarde. Try Tragic"

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (26 customer reviews)

The Lovely
14.  The Lovely by Mara Carlyle
The list author says:
  "Mara Carlyle comes across as a quirky Norah Jones. Her jazzy material is surprisingly strong and there's plenty of saw (!) and cello going on. I Blame You Not and Lost to Sea are gorgeous tracks."
$7.49   Used & New from: $0.13
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Let It Die
15.  Let It Die by Feist
The list author says:
  "..Just in case you've missed out.. Feist is clearly my No. 1 discovery of 2005. Reminiscent of Rickie Lee Jones, especially on Mushaboom. Try One Evening and La Sirena on her debut, Monarch, as well."

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (123 customer reviews)

Lilywhite
16.  Lilywhite by Snowy
The list author says:

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Grand
17.  Grand by Erin McKeown

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

Lady & Bird
18.  Lady & Bird by Lady & Bird
The list author says:
  "Lady and Bird is French singer/songwriter Keren Ann's charming side project with Bardi Johannson. I prefer this over her solo work which tend lack personality and temper. Try Stephanie Says."
$14.22   Used & New from: $0.01
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Quelqu'Un M'a Dit
19.  Quelqu'Un M'a Dit by Carla Bruni

Le Fil
21.  Le Fil by Camille

4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (39 customer reviews)

Little Things
22.  Little Things by Hanne Hukkelberg
The list author says:

Everything Was Beautiful and Nothing Hurt
23.  Everything Was Beautiful and Nothing Hurt by Lily Holbrook
The list author says:
  "Wall-to-wall sounding, but in an utterly charming way with lots of cellos and grandeur. Particularly on the stunning Better Left Unsaid. Lily's voice is reminiscent of Kate Bush. Promising, indeed!"

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Zipless
24.  Zipless by Vanessa Daou
